PUBLISHER’S NOTE

|

WE ARE THE LUCKY ONES; we get to be in Santa Fe this weekend. July 17–19 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting weekends of the year with wonderful art exhibitions and openings and a long list of incredibly good music—much of it free. The Santa Fe Opera continues its highly regarded season this weekend. I never cease to be amazed by the quality of the productions. If you’re seeking something other than opera, however, there are a lot of options in this week’s calendar. Santa Fe has yet another fledgling entertainment venue: Cava, the new club at Eldorado Hotel, is offering live music every weekend. The refurbished space is a welcome addition to Santa Fe’s nightlife. Two venues have birthdays this weekend. Duel Brewery is celebrating 2 years of great, locally brewed beer (along with an eclectic offering of music) by releasing Meow Wolf’s specialty brew. El Farol, a Santa Fe and Canyon Road mainstay for all of us locals, has now been in business for 30 years and is having a summer-long flamenco festival as part of this year’s fun. It’s an amazing little venue—and to think of all the entertaining nights full of great food and good music that have been enjoyed there in the past three decades! Despite the limited space and parking, the magic of El Farol lures us in with some of the best local musicians and a lively, upbeat crowd. The dance floor itself is legendary. The inaugural Baca Street Bash kicks off with lots of fascinating art and live music this Saturday night, July 18, in the Baca Street Arts District. And finally, both the Railyard and the Bandstand on the Plaza have free Latin music on Saturday night. If you like to salsa dance, you will have a difficult decision to make (or, of course, you can go to both); such great music is perfect for dancing and being outdoors. Yes, the rain will quit by then. Weekends like this make our life here so much fun, and it fills me with gratitude to be blessed with such an existence. Hope you feel the same.

People have been chipping art into rocks since they were able to hold tools in their hands, recording their activities, communicating rituals, and portraying abstract patterns. The Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project (MPPP), a nonprofit organization that records, preserves, and manages the 181-acre Wells Petroglyph Preserve, is offering three public tours coinciding with Spanish Market (July 25–26) on July 21, 23, and 26 at 9 am. The exclusive docent-led tours will highlight images of Christian crosses, horses and riders, wagons, churches, and a crowned lion pecked into stone by the Spanish conquistadors, the first European settlers to the Southwest. The Wells Petroglyph Preserve, a little-known archeological gem found north of Española, is home to 75,000 images dating back 7,500 years and is considered the largest petroglyph site in New Mexico. Approximately 10 percent of these images were etched into the volcanic basalt by the Spaniards led by Juan de Oñate, who established a colony in Ohkay Owingeh in 1598. “At one time, there were more than 100 pueblos along the Rio Grande from Velarde to Ojo Caliente, and you can see the petroglyphs here from the different historic periods that have been marked over or adapted,” says Jill Battson, Development and Communications Manager for MPPP. “All of a sudden in 1598, 2,000 people showed up with European animals never seen before by the Puebloans. We’ll be focusing these tours on [petroglyphs of] sheep and goats, women in dresses feeding chickens, and priests in frocks, all from the Historic Period.”—Cristina Olds Spanish Market Petroglyph Tours, July 21, 23, 26, 9 am, $50 (reservations required), Wells Petroglyph Preserve, Velarde, mesaprietapetroglyphs.org

TwylaTharp 50th Anniversary in Dance

Dedicating 50 years to any career is impressive, but it’s a Don’t wait! Buy special feat in the field of your Twyla Tharp tickets on July 20. dance. Iconic American choreographer Twyla Tharp has reached that momentous milestone and will mark it with a fall tour to a dozen American cities, including Santa Fe on September 22. Tickets for the sure-to-sellout show go on sale this week, starting July 20. Tharp has continued to draw on a wellspring of creativity since founding Twyla Tharp Dance in 1965. Her five-decade list of credits is immense: she’s choreographed more than 160 works, 129 dances, 12 television specials, six Hollywood movies, four full-length ballets (including Deuce Coupe, which is set to The Beach Boys’ music and performed by the Joffrey Ballet, and is considered the first crossover ballet), and four Broadway shows, including Movin’ Out. She has received one Tony Award, two Emmy Awards, a National Medal of the Arts, and was a 2008 Kennedy Center honoree. The 10-week anniversary tour features a new 12-person troupe, among them seasoned dancers such as Savannah Lowery, a New York City Ballet soloist on sabbatical from the ballet’s fall season. The fall tour has a double bill of premieres. The show opens with the vibrant Fanfare, with music by composer John Zorn. Yowzie, the second new work, features music by Henry Butler and Steve Bernstein. The evening will also include Preludes and Fugues, a previously performed work set to music by J. S. Bach. Of course, each composition features Tharp’s imaginative movement fusions, from vernacular, human movement to classical ballet and those of her own making, with an emphasis on immaculate technique.—Ashley M. Biggers

PARAMOUNT PICTURES

Baca Street Bash

Terminator is dead In the early 1980s, director James Cameron was working on a movie when he had a vision: a metal skeleton walking out of fire. He worked backward from there, and The Terminator will always rightly be remembered as a classic. Seven years later, he directed a sequel, T-2, which tells essentially the same story, except this time Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator is a hero, and there’s an even more powerful, more deadly robot from the future trying to kill John Connor. T-2 was a blockbuster, but words here can’t quite do it justice. This movie is a touchstone for those of us who were boys in the 1990s. My parents wouldn’t let me see it, but Jim Fuller’s parents didn’t care if he watched an R-rated movie. At recess, Jim regaled us with tales of robot carnage. “A grenade goes into the liquid-metal guy’s stomach and then, like, explodes! And he’s all bent up and weird. Oh man, it was so great.” When we eventually saw it—either by buying a ticket to a different PG-rated movie and sneaking in, or renting it when it came out on VHS—our expectations were shockingly surpassed. No one can tell you how huge the chase scene with the dirt bike, the Harley, and the Mack truck gets; or how intensely everyone fights at the end. My heart swells with love for the first two Terminators. But Terminator 3 wasn’t good (it wasn’t bad either), and Terminator 4 was definitely bad. And now we arrive at the newest installment, Genisys. Arnold’s back, slower than ever, and every other classic character is played by a worse actor. Courtney Jai, as Kyle Reese, owes Michael Biehn an apologetic lunch. Whereas Biehn was weary strength in The Terminator, never comfortable in his past, Jai plays Reese as if Genisys were a romantic comedy, and not a confusing mess of tired action. The script’s endless attempts to explain itself grow awkward and die hard. I entered the screening of Genisys hearing faint echoes of the robot-crazy kid I once was, but I exited duped; all echoes silenced. This has to be the last one, because you can’t water down nothing.—Phil Parker

If Counter Culture is your go-to brunch spot on Saturday mornings, it’s time to mix up your routine and go there for dinner—at least on July 18. That’s when the inaugural Baca Street Bash takes place, all in a quarter-mile radius of the eatery. The brainchild of Art.i.fact consignment shop owners (and Counter Culture neighbors) Jennifer Rowland and Michael Gullberg, the Baca Street Bash offers four hours of live entertainment, art exhibitions, food, and special sales at area establishments. Natural Stones, for example, will give out gemstone grab bags while Liquid Light Glass studio and gallery offers blown-glass hummingbird feeder demos, and Grey Matter Art and Artifacts hosts paper crane folding for events in August that will mark the 70th anniversary of the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In addition to marking down their selection of summer sandals, Rowland and Gullberg are excited to premiere Strangers, a new art collective in Art.i.fact’s back room— a.k.a. the Art.i.factory. Strangers is a group of previously unrepresented artists and writers who will debut their visual art and zines during the block party. “The [Santa Fe] art scene goes to bed at 7 o’clock,” says local artist and collective member Kyle Farrell. “It’s time to start talking about serious art after dark, and the Baca Street Bash is where that conversation begins.”—Whitney Spivey Baca Street Bash, July 18, 5–9 pm, free, 930 Baca, facebook.com/bacastartsdistrict

Marc Quiñones, executive chef of Luminaria Restaurant, located inside the Inn and Spa at Loretto, shops at farmers markets at least twice a week in order to keep his kitchen well stocked with fresh, local foods. He then prepares meals with the hope that “diners will feel comfort, nourishment, and a little bit of excitement” while eating. The lamb T-bone pictured here is rubbed with Vadouvan French curry and grilled on an open flame. It’s served with cascabel chile, green apple relish, and fermented red pepper yogurt; Quiñones recommends pairing the meal with a pinot noir. Quiñones’ culinary career has taken him to Scottsdale, Arizona; Kona, Hawaii; and New York City, but he says that he’s “thrilled to be here; Santa Fe is a mecca of culinary arts.”—Elizabeth Sanchez innatloretto.com

Ted Gall, House of Wisdom, bronze, large

Ted Gall, who studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art, explores the human psyche through his bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel sculptures. He’s interested in matters of the soul and spirit, and he expresses his ideas with a sense of artistry, invention, and wit. Starting with modeled clay, wax, or welded Corten steel, Gall uses the lost-wax method of casting to create unusual figures that seem somewhat familiar and mythological in nature. “The joy I’ve given people with what I’ve done in my work is what I’m most happy about,” says Gall, whose pieces are in the corporate collections of Walt Disney Productions and Standard Oil, among others.—Emily Van Cleve Ted Gall, Hunter Kirkland Contemporary, 200 Canyon, hunterkirklandcontemporary.com

Sandra Duran Wilson a synesthetic blend of taste, sound, and color

The senses cross over for people with synesthesia, so that they taste colors, or “hear music in numbers” as Duran Wilson does.

Sandra Duran Wilson’s steady hand blends diverse materials onto her artworks. “As a child I felt I could hear the animals talking to me and the sounds of the breeze, the running water, and even the rain had stories to tell me,” says multi-media artist Sandra Duran Wilson. Growing up in a family of scientists and artists, Duran Wilson was encouraged to experiment with possibilities. Her first question of the day is always: “What if?” Her passion for mixing things up is reflected in five books she has written on art techniques. Her favorite one explores alternative surfaces using different materials less commonly used in making art. Currently, she’s into cast acrylic, resin, and steel. With over three decades of innovative painting and creating uncommon textures, it’s clear why Duran Wilson says, “Technical challenges keep me intrigued. I have never run out of ideas for making sound and beauty visible.”—Sunamita Lim

Duran Wilson studied science and statistics at UNM. In working with numbers, she would hear songs, which then produced certain colors to her creative mind. Acrylic, resin, and steel soar to new heights.

“Math and science are like a poetic language that weaves its way into my work,” Duran Wilson explains. 22

Modern Perspectives c la s sic wor ks by Ame r ica n Mode r ni sts at The Ow ing s G a l le r y by Emi ly Va n Cle ve

MASTERPIECES BY AMERICAN MODERNIST artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, and Marsden Hartley, are featured in a special exhibition at The Owings Gallery through August 10. The 33 works in the show have been drawn from gallery-owned pieces as well from those in private collections. “We haven’t had an exhibit of these kinds of Modernist masterpieces in a while, so we’re very excited about this show,” says gallery director Laura Widmar. “We greatly admire and enjoy these works.” Widmar is thrilled that the gallery is able to show four paintings—two of them quite large—by Marsden Hartley (1877–1943). “It’s hard to get access to his large works,” she adds. Widmar is also delighted that Black Place III (1945) by O’Keeffe is in the show. This painting, part of a private collection, is viewed as a significant piece in O’Keeffe’s oeuvre. It was on loan to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum for nearly a decade. Works by artists not particularly well known in the Southwest are also on display, such as two collage pieces by western Massachusetts artist and opera singer Suzy Frelinghuysen (1911–1988), who was married to abstract painter George L. K. Morris. Frelinghuysen’s collages can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The show features two sculptural works. La Toilette (carved and fashioned pear wood relief ) was created by sculptor and folk art collector Elie Nadelman (1882–1946), who exhibited his work in Paris in the first decade of the 20th century. Head of an Indian Woman (carved wood sculpture) is a piece by Allan Clarke (1919–1979), who had a oneman show at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in the early 1950s. Other works on display include Oil No. 5 by Raymond Jonson, several watercolors on paper by Cady Wells (1904–1954), and a brush and ink work on paper by Morris Graves (1910–2001). Every piece is available for purchase. Modern Perspectives, American Modernists, July 17–August 10, reception July 17, 5–7 pm, free, The Owings Gallery, 100 E Palace, owingsgallery.com

ARTIST BRITT FREDA PRESENTS her contemplative subject matter via more than a dozen new acrylic, oil, graphite, and mixed-media pieces in Learn, her latest exhibit at Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art. Freda’s unmistakable style of abstract painted collage reveals endangered animals—and some girls— that dissolve into square, circles, drips, and patterns when examined up close. In her years researching endangered species and the environment, Freda says she realizes there is no singular solution, but that human involvement is undeniable and essential. Explaining the theme of the exhibit, she says, “The more I learn, the more I realize there is to learn, the more I cannot avoid seeing that the causes and the potential solutions reach across disciplines and special interest groups and NGOs and politics and economics and religion.” Sampling from a muted but vibrant palette of natural hues, Freda portrays black and white rhinos, brown pelicans, stellar sea lions, spotted owls, and a honey bee, among many more from the endangered list. “One of the perks, for me, of painting these animals is that I really get to learn about their anatomy and their habitat and the people who live in that area and the things that threaten them,” Freda says. Some of her new works feature young girls with the animals, encouraging viewers to consider the plight of 24

“My hope is that, in my paintings, there is an element of beauty layered with rough scratches, words, wrinkles, and scars that, while being alluring, exposes a vulnerable rawness.”—Britt Freda girls and how to get involved. Freda’s piece titled Guardians depicts a female lion alongside four of the 270 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped from their school in April 2014. “It is my belief that now is a critical time for education, cocollaboration, and the creative brain power of this generation and the next, girls and boys alike, East and West, to invent, to realign, to survive,” she says. The 43-year-old artist from Vashon Island, Washington, has been represented at Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art in Santa Fe since 2009.

The magical light, the wide open landscape, and the culturally complex history of Santa Fe are the primary reasons that so many talented artists are drawn to this area. Thus, The Power of Place is an apt title for this masterful exhibit displayed upon the living canvas of the 14-acre Santa Fe Botanical Garden, itself a powerful place. Sixteen exemplary Santa Fe sculptors represent the three dominant New Mexico cultures: Anglo, American Indian and Hispanic. Artists in the show include Kevin Box, Bill Barrett, Doug Coffin, David DeStafeno,Tammy Garcia, Phillip Haozous, Allan Houser, Estella Loretto, Frank Morbillo, Arlo Namingha, Dan Namingha, Michael Naranjo, Bill Prokopiof, David Pearson, Gilbert Romero, and Roxanne Swentzell. “Santa Fe is imbued with a creative spirit that nurtures artists,” says guest curator Dr. Letitia Chambers in a media statement. “These striking works of art spring from the power of this extraordinary place.”—Cristina Olds

Orlando Dugi O r l an d o D ugi ’s coch ineal-dyed f a s h i on s hi t the r unway s th is

S u m me r of Color Fashion photos by Nate Francis Hair and makeup by Dina DeVore

Although Navajo fashion designer Orlando Dugi has won top awards every year for the past 15 that he’s shown in the Southwest Indian Market fashion categories, this year he’s choosing to participate in Santa Fe Street Fashion Week instead. The young designer is currently up to his elbows working on garments for his new Red collection, which feature silk fabric hand-dyed with cochineal and embellished with gold bouillon and bead embroidery. “I don’t like to call it Native American beadwork. It’s the same style that has been done in India for centuries,” Dugi says. “Red is my most elaborate collection so far.” Dugi grew up beading with his grandmother in Arizona, and his first fashion creations were beaded handbags that have all sold quickly. Actress Kateri Walker famously carried a Dugi original on the 2011 Academy Awards red carpet, a touch of visibility that helped launch his career. Now, with four years’ experience at invitation-only shows such as the Mercedes Benz Oklahoma Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week, and with pieces chosen for exhibits at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian and the Heard Museum, the designer says he’s found the direction he wants to take—which involves attending fewer fashion shows and focusing on developing his lines. One of the evening gowns from the Red collection was chosen based on a sketch for The Red That Colored the World exhibit at the International Folk Art Museum, a Summer of Color event. The beaded silk and satin gown is the striking finale of the exhibit, tying the continents’ use of cochineal dye together, from the beetle’s origins in the Americas to the haute couture of Europe. For the Red collection, Dugi studied antique Navajo textiles and looked at pre-Columbian and matrilineal societies for inspiration. “A big issue today is Native cultural appropriation [in fashion], but if people are inspired by a different culture, they shouldn’t make it so literal,” he says. “I like to take stories and weave them into something else.”—Cristina Olds Orlando Dugi, orlandodugi.com
